Keynote Speech Title: "Universities – A New Way for Development"

Abstract

It goes without saying that universities are the foundation of state`s structure that ensures its stability both literally and figuratively. Universities educate, teach, create the most intelligent members of society, implement research and developments and create new technologies. By presumption, universities form an elite space that largely determines the path of the state. It is no coincidence that in highly developed countries the leadership monitors closely university rankings: the state benefits from the strategies, programmes and projects developed by the universities, the business takes into consideration and counts on university education and research and the universities themselves become more competitive to achieve the best results in their field. The modern world cannot exist without universities, without modern universities, to be more precise. In the past, we called them third generation universities, however nowadays it would be more appropriate to update the numbers, as is happening with industry, for compliance and development. In Bulgaria, changes in the universities such as of their structures and quality of education follow certain management models and strategies that do not consistently and effectively strive to create a satisfactory product for society. There are relatively few universities whose educational and scientific policy strongly encourage freedom of scientific creativity and the recognized need for progress in science for the development of the economy. Compliance with the imposed models and strategies makes most of the higher education institutions subject to sciento-metric indicators that create high scientific potential with little contribution to real economic and technological development. Even the last national strategy for smart specialization did not single out the much-desired centers of excellence, did not produce results driving the knowledge economy.

This raises a question of not whether there are too many universities, whether new universities or branches should be opened or whether there should be a moratorium; not whether there should be a national map of higher education, whether teaching and science are leading in the university and not whether they should be divided into research and non-research (which would make them just schools) HEI, but how universities should work to improve the environment so that our economy does not wait for high-tech investments from outside, but has its own and ideally even exports them.  

This research analyses the role of universities as a driving force of development, as part of a developing high-tech society that sets different standards and focus areas. The reversed top-down direction with the set requirements and criteria for growth gave university education and science a high formalism, which is expressed in self-sufficient academic growth, not particularly effective project funding and untapped potential for society.

European and national policies in the field of education and science are being analyzed, which are expected to generate ideas and new models for development, form new focus areas and positions that will not reflect everyday life in the system, but will look years ahead. Reforming universities has long been on the agenda mainly, but not only, due to changes in the social environment, in the economy, in technologies, in risks and pandemics. Universities are the ones that “produce” human resources for the leadership of the state, for the management and maintenance of each system.

Universities should have a new way for their development, as well as a vision that would correspond to the future needs.
